At P&G, environmental sustainability is embedded in how we do business. We make people’s everyday lives a little better. However, while our commitment to “better” has never changed, the standard we need to deliver on has. More and more for our consumers, better for them, without better for the planet, is no longer better. We share that conviction. Innovation cannot be irresistibly superior without also being sustainable. Together in partnership we can build a better future for all. After all, it’s our home. And our window is now.

Ambition 2030

P&G’s Ambition 2030 supports our brands’ ability to provide irresistible superiority that is sustainable to improve lives now and for generations to come. At its foundation is improving the livelihoods of people across our operations, supply chain, and the communities we serve. It is built upon the strength of four science-based pillars—Climate, Waste, Water and Nature—where we can make the biggest difference for the planet and our business.

We are delivering impact at three levels: reducing our own impact, enabling people to reduce their impact, and scaling industry-wide solutions to reduce environmental impact.

Learn more about P&G’s efforts to reach net zero by 2040.

P&G’s ambition is to reach net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across our supply chain and operations – from raw material to retailer – by 2040. Our climate journey began over a decade ago with goals at our own manufacturing facilities. Since then, we have expanded and accelerated our efforts to address GHG emissions across the life cycle of our products, and within our operations and supply chain.

Our focus is on significantly reducing absolute GHG emissions in our total operational and supply chain emissions to reach our net zero ambition. We will balance any remaining emissions from our operations and supply chain by advancing natural or technical solutions that remove an equivalent amount of GHG emissions from the atmosphere. To help pace our progress toward 2040, we have established near-term science-based targets for 2030.

P&G’s aim is to create a more circular value chain where material is continually recycled and remade to remain in use instead of becoming waste.

P&G provides everyday products of superior quality and value to people around the world. Product packaging materials like plastic are useful in providing product protection and a lighter weight to lower GHG emissions during transportation.

We believe we can unlock more worth from packaging materials long after their first use. P&G is teaming up with industry coalitions and nonprofits to invent and find scalable solutions to reduce waste and reuse packaging and materials.

How are we helping build a water positive future?

Learn how we’re supporting the natural ecosystems that support P&G and beyond.

At P&G, the success of our business is intricately linked to the health and sustainability of the natural environment. We believe it is important to help protect and restore critical ecosystems that help sustain our operations, support the wellbeing of people, and help protect the long-term health of our planet.

We are committed to responsible sourcing of key commodities like wood pulp, palm oil and paper packaging together with respecting human, labor and land tenure rights in our supply chains. We are also going beyond responsible sourcing to help restore and protect landscapes near our existing supply chains and invest in natural climate solutions that can remove and store more carbon.

We recognize we cannot do this alone, which is why we collaborate with our partners to help restore and protect these ecosystems that are critical to people, the planet and P&G.
